Stylist/ Salon owner
The Early Years
A licensed cosmetologist for over 20 years, I try to be the model of professionalism and excellence. Starting with a desire to style my friends hair as a teenager, I decided to pursue cosmetology in 1992 at Macon Beauty School, where I was trained to cut hair under the Pivot Point system.
After completing the State Board of Cosmetology test and licensed; I set my sights on a move from Macon, GA to Atlanta.
Within four years, I opened a salon named,"All About U! Hair Designs," which was in operation for 10 years, and employed up to four stylists and a Braider, at subsequent times.
Later, I developed a desire to further my education and pursued an opportunity to become a certified platform artist/instructor for the company Avalon, where I instructed stylists for two years. Exploring the many roles as a hairstylist, I was drawn to Natural hair, after transitioning to natural hair in 2008. Once learning techniques and how to treat hair naturally, people started to say I was one with "Growing Hands."
Shortly, after a health scare which occurred in my life, I felt lead to fully commit to teaching women how to care for their hair naturally with various natural treatments and products. My passion quickly became one of producing Healthy hair and assisting clients with their at-home regimen and hair goals.
As co-owner of Replenish Salon in Atlanta, I began to thrive in my natural God-gifted environment.
I really enjoy motivating others and I'm passionate about natural hair and wellness. Currently, I use my platform to educate upcoming stylists in Natural Hair Care, Business strategies, and teach women how to navigate in a complex marketplace.
Over the last few years, the Replenish Brand has grown to also include, a natural hair care line named after the salon- "Naturally Replenish- The Essentials Line!"
The line is set to have about 10 products to include: Shampoo's, Conditioner's, Treatments, and Styling options!
The Replenish Brand also have an online apparel boutique (Replenished Apparel).
